Condo won’t prune trees over MRT tracks
Branches deemed safety hazard, but condo won’t foot bill 
 
 
THE problem: About a dozen 12m-tall trees on the premises of a condominium in the east coast area, encroaching on the raised MRT tracks. 
 
SMRT says the overgrown branches may be a safety hazard to train operations. 
 
But the condominium, Stratford Court, has balked at spending over $2,000 to prune them. 
 
It noted that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) guide classified the planting of trees with full-grown height extending above the railway barrier as a restricted activity. 
 
However, the condominium’s management committee (MC) added that the guide dated back to August 2000 - and those trees were planted in 1998. 
 
The condominium was therefore not obliged to comply with the demands of the guide, said MC chairman Lionel De Souza.
